The genus of Nocardia is rapidly expanding and the species distribution varies with different geographical locations.

During the study period, 164 isolates of Nocardia spp. were identified from 134 patients but only 113 patients had Nocardia infection. Nocardia brasiliensis (n = 54) was the most common… CONTINUE READING
